Scalent Systems, whose Virtual Operating Environment (V/OE) software is leading the next generation of data center virtualization, today announced its C round of equity funding. This round was led by new investor Credit Suisse and includes participation by all existing investors, Hummer Winblad, JK&B Capital, and Pequot Capital. The funding round will provide $15 million in venture capital, which will be used for continued expansion of sales operations.

"The backing of Credit Suisse serves not only as a solid foundation for our continuing expansion, but as a significant validation of our technology," said Ben Linder, CEO, Scalent Systems.
